Chocolate-Caramel Swirl Brownies

Sena Wilson


I have to say that brownies are my favorite dessert bars. They are quick and easy to prepare when craving chocolate! I like to play with various ingredients to justify my excuse for baking up a batch. This recipe indulges in chunky pieces of walnuts and Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa but it is a matter of preference. Your choice of chocolate or nuts can be substituted.
